In a modern city, you will often find pieces of the history of the city dotted around. One of the major historical aspects of New York is the use of a horse and carriage as transportation, as it was the original method of transport used when the city was new.Another historic feature of New York is Central Park, which was first established in 1857. It has grown to be an iconic park known all over the world, as well as being recognized as a National Historic Landmark.Combining carriage rides with the iconic landscape of Central Park and the surrounding area is enough to give most people a thrill at the very thought of it. Central Park carriage rides are real, historic, romantic, nostalgic, and available to you right now!
